Nutrition and Lifestyle

"Those who take medicine and neglect their diet waste the skill of the physician" (Chinese proverb). The Chinese method is based on the idea that no single part can be understood except in its relation to the whole. Therefore the treatment received can be accentuated, or aggravated by what occurs outside of the clinic.

I strongly believe that a client who actively involves themselves in their healing process, both in and outside of the clinic, continues to use these tools to maintain their health long after their treatment has concluded. In Chinese medicine, nutrition and lifestyle advice is not just about eating foods that are good for us and getting enough exercise, but the manner in which we nourish and support our mental, physical and emotional health.

Infants and Children

Chinese medicine has specialised in treating children dating back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279)

The key to facilitating healthy growth and development is to prevent or resolve acute conditions and address underlying weakness by strengthening the child in the early stages, ultimately decreasing the likelihood of chronic illness later in life.
